"The Island" Transformed

On the weekend of 14th & 15th March 2020, a group of five volunteers from the Friends' group re-kerbed what has become known as "The Island" in Ladywell Cemetery.  This originally was an ornamental oval which had become overgrown.  With the agreement of Bereavement Services, the Friends volunteers have worked on this site for three or so years cutting back, digging over the soil, weeding and now re-kerbing the edge, using the edging slabs already there.  The project was conceived by Mick Martin, who has been assisted on occasions by other members of the Friends' group. The next stage is to introduce some more shrubs and other planting.
